Today’s song is “As I Lay Sleeping” by Ozarks. Ozarks is Robbie Augspurger’s main musical project. Augspurger writes and records Ozarks songs with the help of his friend Eric Lee. In his words, it’s really them making music they think is “cool to listen to, kind of in the vein of late 60s/early 70s baroque pop”. Augsperger continues: “Eric has probably forgotten more about late 60s/early 70s French/Italian chanson/cinema-pop than I’ve ever known.
Augspurger has been been working on this record on and off for five years, and last year a small label (Wil-Ru Records) offered to press it on vinyl.
